MacIntosh Books and Paper
2365 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel, FL
We made a wonderful jaunt to Sanibel Island in June and stumbled upon this cheery establishment where Susan and Jennifer sell swell books by the seashore. I doubt if I will ever see a wild manatee and old books in the same hour again. My front desk shot was blurry but the website has some good ones. From the back of a little bookmark they give out we have the following:
“An Island Tradition
William “Mac” MacIntosh founded MacIntosh Bookshop in 1960. The original store was located on the east end of Sanibel and later moved, first to a building near the causeway intersection, then to its current location in the quaint yellow building beneath the “It’s time to read” clock. In 2005, Susan Holly and Jennifer Lessinger acquired MacIntosh and merged with The Write Stuff, the island’s only stationer, forming MacIntosh Books and Paper. Mac died in 1982, but the tradition of his island bookshop lives on.”
